Variety 
and Change 



A dominant characteristic of Pennsylvania agriculture is its wide 
variety, as indicated by the long and varied list of farm and allied 
organizations that help to service this industry. 

The wide range in the state's farm crops results from varied to- 
pography, climate and soil structure. Farmers suit their programs 
to soil, weather, and other conditions. This results in crops and 
products of many different kinds, and gives fact to the statement 
that Pennsylvania agriculture is widely diversified. 

Each of these diverse elements is an important part of the state's 
total farm program. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture 
works with them individually and as a whole to achieve a still 
better agricultural industry. 

Agriculture is constantly changing, and the Department adjusts 
its program to suit new developments and needs. Work of the De- 
partment's bureaus and commissions is indicated in brief on the 
following pages. 

Cooperation with the Pennsylvania State University and the 
United States Department of Agriculture enables the Department 
to share in extensive programs in agricultural education and re- 
search. The Department works closely, also, with all farm and re- 
lated agencies and organizations, including other branches of the 
state government. 

This Directory of Information, now revised for 1963, is compiled 
as a service to all of these agencies and to the public generally.

Animal Industry 



The Bureau of Animal Industry works cooperatively with the 
Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of 
Agriculture, the hvestock and poultry farmers, and the Agricul- 
tural Extension Service of The Pennsylvania State University. It 
initiates, organizes, and enforces programs for the prevention, con- 
trol and eradication of transmissible diseases of domestic animals 
and poultry on Pennsylvania farms. These programs are aimed at 
preventing economic losses to the farmer from the death of live- 
stock and poultry. They also are assurance to the consummg public 
that a safe and normal supply of milk, meat, and food products will 

be available. . , • ^ i 

The Meat Hygiene Division plays an increasingly important role 
in consumer protection by inspecting much of the meat offered 
for sale and by controlling the sanitary standards of meat and 
poultry establishments. This is done through the licensing and su- 
pervision of cattle dealers, livestock auctions, meat and poultry 
establishments, and rendering plants. A check is maintained for 
control of diseases transmissible to other animals or to man, and 
thus possible serious disease outbreaks are averted by alert meat 
inspectors. Newest knowledge and techniques are used to combat 
such costly diseases as tuberculosis, brucellosis, sheep scabies, hog 
cholera, rabies, puUorum, paratuberculosis, and anaplasmosis. 

Five regional diagnostic laboratories are maintained throughout 
the commonwealth to provide adequate diagnostic services to the 
veterinary profession and producers. 

This Bureau also supervises the licensing of dogs and regulates 
domestic mink farms. 

Purchasers of inspected meats are assured of quality products. Bureau of 
Animal Industry veterinarians make regular checks on meat and poultry 
establishments. 




Food items offered for sale in Penn- 
sylvania are under constant surveil- 
lance. Here chemist in Bureau of 
Foods and Chemistry tests milk for 
butterfat content. 

Foods 
and Chemistry 



When you buy food and beverages at your local grocery store, 
you have a right to expect them to be tasty, wholesome, of good 
quality, nutritious, and prepared under sanitary conditions. 

The Bureau of Foods and Chemistry is on the job to make cer- 
tain the foods you buy: (1) Will not cause illness, (2) Will not 
contain foreign matter, (3) Will not be an economic cheat. 

Most of the violations for which processors and retailers are cited 
are either accidental or of an economic nature, rather than in- 
stances of deliberate adulteration. 

In buying his raw materials, such as animal feed, lime, and fer- 
tilizer for producing food and fiber, the farmer depends on the 
guarantee of the manufacturer. Nearly 20,000 individual labora- 
tory tests are made annually by the Feed and Fertilizer Division 
to check these guarantees. 

In addition to the General Food Law, the Bureau enforces spe- 
cific laws relating to ice cream, bakery products, sausage, oleo- 
margarine, soft drinks, animal feed, fertilizer, pesticides, and lime. 
Many of these laws require registration and licensing. The Bureau 
issues approximately 35,000 licenses, permits, and certificates of 
registration each year. 

The Division of Milk Sanitation annually issues more than 3,000 
permits to dairies in Pennsylvania and adjacent states which sell 
milk in Pennsylvania. These plants are inspected regularly by the 
Bureau. Employees of dairies are certified to inspect dairy farms 
to see that cows and milk are being handled in a manner to insure 
rigid standards of quality. 

Samples of food, animal feed, fertilizer, and agricultural lime- 
stone are collected by agents of the Bureau throughout the state 
for analysis in the Bureau's laboratory. New laboratory facihties 
wiU be available by July, 1964, on completion of the new Penn- 
sylvania Department of Agriculture Building now under construc- 
tion opposite the Farm Show Building. The new facilities will in- 
clude modern equipment for the chemical analysis of food, feed, 
fertilizer, and liming materials and a special laboratory devoted to 
the bacteriological examination of milk, ice cream, and other dairy 
products.

Markets 

Production of food is not the sole aim of the farmer today. He 
realizes that his food must reach the consumer at the peak of qual- 
ity before he can consider his job completed. 

Many factors are involved in this huge task which is termed 
"marketing." The agency of the Pennsylvania Department of Ag- 
riculture specifically assigned to this field is the Bureau of Markets. 

To insure quahty, much of the work of the Bureau mvolves m- 
spection and grading. Fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, eggs, poultry, 
livestock and fruits and vegetables for processing are inspected and 
graded under official standards by skilled employees and agents 

of the Bureau. . , , , , x ^ x 

In the poultry and egg field, the Bureau of Markets starts to 
promote a high quality product before it ever appears by encour- 
aging breeding and use of chickens and turkeys with superior qual- 
ities. Operation of the Pennsylvania Random Sample Egg Laymg 
Test and the Pennsylvania Turkey Meat Production Test is under 
supervision of the Bureau of Markets. Both tests are designed to 
give the farmer basic information on the abilities of various strams 

of birds. . . . , . 

The food business is one of the most competitive in the nation. 
Promotion of Pennsylvania's farm products is also a task of the 
Bureau of Markets. Specialists use all the media of modern mass 
communications to tell the people of Pennsylvania about the qual- 
ity of the products grown in the Keystone State. Marketing spe- 
ciahsts also have tested consumer reactions and have offered sug- 
gestions to industry groups on how to increase demand for their 
food and non-food products, such as wool, flowers, and Christmas 

1/I*66S 

Official reporting of farm product sales— known as market 
news— is carried on by the Bureau in cooperation with federal 
employees.

Show illustrates Bureau of Markets' year-round promotion of state s agri- 
cultural commodities. 



Bureau of Plant Industry inspector checks potato field for seed certifica- 
tion — a quality control program that pays off in superior farm crops. 

Plant Industry 

Agricultural and vegetable seeds offered for sale on the market 
are checked by the Bureau of Plant Industry for purity and germi- 
nation and also for the presence of weed seeds. The Pennsylvania 
Seed Act further requires proper labeling of seed offered for sale. 

Recent increases in acreage yield of grain crops and potatoes 
are due partly to the availability of superior crop seeds furnished 
through the seed certification service of this Bureau. 

All of the nurseries of the state are inspected each year and 
those free of plant pests are officially certified by the state. Where 
pests are found, prompt treatment for their control is a require- 
ment for certification. This insures that purchasers of Pennsylvania 
grown stock will get good, vigorous ornamental or fruit plants. 

Statewide surveys are made to determine the presence or abun- 
dance of plant pests. Such pests include nematodes, oak wilt, stem 
rust, Japanese beetle, and gypsy moth. At the same time observa- 
tions are made for the presence of unknown or new pests and the 
natural enemies of plant pests. 

An airborne disease of cereal crops — Black Stem Rust — has 
been greatly decreased in the grain growing counties of the com- 
monwealth through federal-state-county cooperation in European 
barberry eradication. European barberry serves as the early spring 
host of this disease. 

All known colonies of bees are inspected as an aid to beekeepers 
in the contrbl of the devastating brood diseases. Colonies found 
with diseases are ordered treated or destroyed. The incidence of 
f oulbrood has been reduced to less than 2 per cent.

Farm Show 



Biggest agricultural event of the year in the state is the Penn- 
sylvania Farm Show. It is the most representative in reflecting the 
state's total farm program. Fifty-five different farm organizations 
comprise the Farm Show Committee that serves in an advisory 
capacity to the Farm Show Commission. This assures "grass roots" 
participation in the planning and preparation for these events. 
The Commission, in charge of the show, is headed by the Governor 
of the commonwealth. The Secretary of Agriculture, by virtue 
of his office, is chairman of the Commission. 

Many of the Farm Show Committee groups and other supporting 
farm organizations make a further contribution to the show in the 
form of educational meetings. These number around forty at each 
Farm Show. 

Farm and related exhibits come from all sections of the state 
and represent nearly the whole range of multi-varied products from 
the state's widely diversified farm program. These exhibits improve 
in quality from year to year, reflecting steady advances in the 
state's agriculture. They would show a steady increase in nurnber, 
also, except for Hmitations in space. Because of these Hmitations, 
many entries must be turned away each year. 

Commercial exhibitors support the show financially and make 
their own distinct contribution through displays of the newest 
types and kinds of machinery and equipment, all of which figure 
importantly in the state's farm production. 

Attendance at the Farm Show averages over 600,000 persons, 
and at the 1963 exposition went up to a new all-time high of 
690,000. The Farm Show Building, a complex of nearly 14 acres 
under continuous roof, is used the year-round for some 40 other 
events, bringing total attendance for all events to well over a 
million persons. . 

These added events include the international Pennsylvania Live- 
stock Exposition, Pennsylvania Junior Dairy Show, conventions, 
meetings, and various other shows and expositions. The 1964 Penn- 
sylvania Farm Show will be next Jan. 13-17. 

Farm Show means fun, too. Folk dance festival for "kids from 
six to sixty" is regular Tuesday night entertainment feature. 



Christmas tree production conserves soil and water, and 
provides cash crop on land that may be unsuited for other 
farm purposes. 

Soil Conservation 

The Secretary of Agriculture, by virtue of his office, is chairman 
of the State Soil Conservation Commission. 

The Commission's work is largely educational, explaining the 
purpose and operation of Soil Conservation Districts by use of 
literature, articles, slide talks, films and other media. It encourages 
the formation of new districts and helps county commissioners 
organize them once created by resolution. Clerical aid, funds and 
other assistance are furnished Pennsylvania's 61 Soil Conserva- 
tion Districts now organized. 

Of special interest to urban and rural dwellers is a 25-minute 
16 millimeter color film, entitled "Beyond Tomorrow," portraying 
the accomplishments of Pennsylvania's soil conservation districts. 
It is available for showings without charge through the State Soil 
Conservation Commission. 

Special activities of the Commission include the administration 
of the state appropriation for the cooperative federal-state soil 
survey program and support of research with the U. S. Geological 
Survey to measure the effects of conservation on stream flow and 
siltation. The Commission acts as the Governor's representative in 
approving small watershed flood prevention programs under U. S. 
Public Law 566. 

Steady progress in all areas of the Pennsylvania conservation 
program has been noted by the Commission. Pennsylvania has a 
long history marked by good farming practices. Farmers in the 
commonwealth were among the first to recognize the need for 
fertilizers, water control and other similar practices designed to 
stop erosion and maintain the productivity of Pennsylvania's soils. 

It is the policy of the Commission to assist local private water- 
shed organizations wherever possible. Applications for assistance 
under the Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention Act (U. S. 
Pubhc Law 566) are checked by Commission staff members.

Crop Reporting 

The Pennsylvania Crop Reporting Service is a cooperative agen- 
cy of the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and the Statis- 
tical Reporting Service of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. 
Its primary function and responsibility is the collection, analysis 
and dissemination of facts and figures on the agriculture of the 

During past years, the Crop Reporting Service also has carried 
out surveys for the U. S. Departments of Commerce and Labor, 
the Pennsylvania State University, the Pennsylvania Department 
of Pubhc Instruction and other Pennsylvania state government 
agencies. In addition, the Service conducts special projects on pro- 
duction and marketing practices which are financed by federal- 
state matched funds under provisions of the Agricultural Marketmg 
Act of 1946. 

Some 15,000 Pennsylvania farmers serve as volunteer crop re- 
porters. They supply accurate and timely information on farm 
prospects and production in 25 different categories of the state's 
agriculture. This information serves as a basis for official estimates 
and reports. In processing the information, statisticians in the Crop 
Reporting Service interpret it in quantitative estimates. All state 
data is also pooled for national estimates. 

Frequent changes in the source of supply, quantities produced 
and the consequent changes in price of farm products call for a 
sound basis of judgment by individual farmers, by commodity 
groups, and by governmental agencies. The Pennsylvania Crop 
Reporting Service supplies information needed for sound decisions. 



Crop Reporting Service statisticians project field data into forecasts and 
estimates as guides to farmers in both production and marketing.

Pennsylvania History^ 
Topography, Climate 

Pennsylvania, one of the thirteen original states, was settled by William 
Penn at Upland (now called Chester) in 1682. The grant of the territory west 
of the Delaware River was made to Penn by the King of England in settle- 
ment of a debt of $80,000 due the estate of Perm's father for services rendered 
as an Admiral in the English Navy. The English secured this territory from 
the Dutch in 1664. 

The State originally consisted of three cotmties: Philadelphia, Chester and 
Bucks. The number was increased by dividing these counties from time to 
time until the nmnber reached 67. The last county was Lackawanna in 1878. 

The State is rectangular in shape and about 302 miles long by 176 wide. 
It contains 45,215 square miles, or 28,828,000 acres of land area, and is 
thirty-second in size among the states. It is not quite as large as New York 
but a little larger than Virginia, and is more than twice as large as New 
Jersey, Delaware and Maryland put together. 

TOPOGRAPHY 

Pennsylvania, as is the case in most Atlantic States, has comparatively 
level lands in the east and is more moimtainous in the central and western 
sections. The elevation of the land varies from less than one hundred feet 
above sea level in the southeastern part of the State to approxunately three 
thousand feet at the summit of some of the ridges in the Allegheny Moim- 

tains. . • .1 

The Piedmont province, one of three topographic provinces crossmg the 
State, takes in all the land southeast of South Mountain. The second is the 
Ridge and Valley province in the central section of the State. It is largely 
mountainous on the west. The topography consists of many long ridges of 
1,000 and 1,500 feet high, separating many beautiful and fertile valleys. The 
largest valleys are the Nittany and the Kishacoquillas. The Allegheny Moun- 
tain and Plateau province lies to the west and north of the Ridge and Valley 
province and covers about two-thirds of the entire area of Pennsylvania. The 
streams and the valleys of this western section wind in all directions, and 
the surface is a maze of hills and valleys, quite high in the eastern part of 
the province but becoming gently rolling in the west. 

CLIMATE 

Pennsylvania is in that part of the United States having comparatively 
heavy rainfall. It is heaviest over most of the State during the spring and 
summer months, just when it will do most good for the growing crops. The 
State is in the zone of prevailing westerly winds. Throughout most of the 
State the wind blows chiefly from the northwest in winter and from the 
southwest during the smnmer, except when disturbed by storms. Annual 
precipitation averages 42 inches. 

AGRICULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES 

Agriculture is one of Pennsylvania's major industries. With manufacturing, 
mining and other industrial enterprises present in all sections of the State, 
unexcelled markets for farm products result and the close relationship of 
agriculture to industrial effort proves mutually beneficial. 

Pennsylvania farmers are particularly fortunate in having these many local 
markets well distributed over the State. The products of the farms are esti- 
mated to be within an average distance of 75 miles of the markets in which 
they are consumed. About one-third of the Nation's population is within 
overnight trucking distance from the farms of Pennsylvania.

Answering Some 
Questions on 
Pennsylvania Farming 

Farmers in Pennsylvania raise crops, livestock, and poultry. About one- 
fourth of their income is from crops, such as com, wheat, potatoes, apples, etc. 

The largest farms in Pennsylvania are: "The Buck and Doe Run Valley 
Farms," Coatesville, RD 4, with about 11,000 acres in pasture, for feeding 
cattle brought from Texas; and the 12,000-acre "Milton Hershey Farms," 
Hershey, Pennsylvania. 

The farmer improves his soil by using lime, manure', commercial fertilizers, 
and through soil conservatioft practices, designed to prevent the soil from 
washing away during heavy rains. 

Few farmers are able to test their ovm soil. In each county, the county 
agricultural extension agent will test the soil to see whether or not it needs 
calcium, and will make this test without charge. If a farmer wants to know 
how much nitrogen, potash, and phosphorus are in his soil, he submits a 
sample of soil from his farm to the County Agent, and it is sent to the College 
of Agriculture at The Pennsylvania State University, where the soil is ana- 
lyzed. The farmer gets a report which tells him if he needs additional ferti-
